security foreign policy moves back to the front burner of this presidential campaign. hanging over all of this is the question as to whether israel will launch a unilateral strike against iran before the u.s. election to stop the threat. megyn: ed henry, we are being told that this this is the first time in two decades that the president has chosen not to meet with world leaders. the first time in two decades, our leader has chosen not to sit down with a foreign leader. a common topic was the president appearance of the view and the u.s. consulate attack on libya. the violence was the result of a spontaneous mob. and then tried to verify that it was a self-evident terrorist attack. the president made no mention of the word terror or any terror groups when he denounced the violence on either venue. >> the at talks in attacks in benghazi were no doubt that it was a terror attack. >> are no doubt that the kinds of weapons that were used, the ongoing assault, that it wasn't just a mob action. what is clear is that around the world, there is still a lot of threats out there. megyn: coming u
obama's foreign policy in a blistering speech, congressman ryan comparing the anti-american violence in the middle east to the 1979 attack on the u.s. embassy and hostage taking in tehran. he says president obama's foreign policy is to blame. rnc chair reince priebus joins us. nice to see you, sir. >> hey. he's right. you blue at barack obama, not only did he make a whole host of promises in this country that he didn't fulfill -- remember back in 2007, it was barack obama who made the sales pitch to our country balls of his background, living in indonesia, in a muslim country, that he was going to bring a special type of diplomacy to northern africa and the middle east. now we're seeing the results of barack obama. now, he's the guy that -- that said that mitt romney was shooting first and aiming later when mitt romney criticized the fact that barack obama had to walk back the statements made from an embassy in egypt. now the media is fixated on asking questions about that, but they should be asking questions to barack obama as to why would you as president of the united states have
under control. your statement is not accurate. >> let me go back to the policy questions, foreign policy question about the situation recently with the north africa. american taxpayers billions of dollars -- it was a big issue when we saw the scenes will see in a moment in egypt and the anniversary of the 9/11 terrorist attacks. a radical islamist group attacked the u.s. embassy and tore down the american flag. in the same day, in libya, an assault on the consulate resulted in the death of the american ambassador christopher stevens and three others. these images echo the worst -- the recall those moments in 1979 with the taking of american hostages at the embassy in iran. u.s. taxpayers as an enormous 1.6 billion doris to egypt, -- $1.6 billion to egypt, which is now run by a former member of the muslim brotherhood. should the u.s. give up foreign aid to these nations, mr. sadler? >> no. not now, we have a fledgling government being formed a. with egypt withholding funds, the editorial board agreed is time for us to stop the old on that aid. it is in our best interests to stay involved.
duking it out on foreign policy all of a sudden. >> that's right. one city, two candidates and two different visions. it's clear that mitt romney is charging that the president is sitting on the side line, not active enough in the middle east. the president, as you noted, his suggestion is look, you can't dictate the facts on the ground in the middle east. some of this has to play out. where we see that most acutely is on iran where mitt romney is suggesting we should be more aggressive, maybe use military action. the president today said give sanctions some more time to work. although he added this caveat. >> that's why a coalition of countries is holding their iranian government accountable. that's why the united states will do what we must to prevent iran from obtaining a nuclear weapon. >> do what we must suggests possible military action down the road. today iran tried to flex its military muscles by saying it has a new drone that can travel what's significant? about that means it can reach israel. that's why a lot of people were pressuring the president to meet with netanyahu
of the case. ought president has demonstrated there really isn't a central rudder to our foreign policy coming out of the white house. most americans are looking at it wanting to see pore -- more leadership. >>reporter: the president is not letting those attacks get to him. on way out of the u.n. he recognized a security guard from a previous visit and he said, you still rooting for the jets in he did not mention the refs but carney thinks both sides neat to get together and get the regular refs back in. i knew you wanted it know. >>shepard: i cannot think of anyone who doesn't want the refs back to work. >>reporter: paul ryan tried to say the replacement him of the president dealing with the economy and it is team to bring in a new team. i don't think the white house remembers. >>shepard: and new to judith miller, adjunct fellow at the manhattan institute. >>guest: it was the speech of a president running if re-election, not a hint of apology for america for the values in this speech, a lot of toughness, there was almost a focus only on the middle east and the muslim world. no mention of chin
on. >> we've got to get professional with our foreign policy. we have to understand there is some reality to peace through strength and trying to be soft and apologetic as a foreign policy tool is the dumbest thing we can do. >> the president made no apology in that speech today. >> bill: joe, let me ask you this question. joe, he was pandering -- i was embarrassed frankly to watch him give the speech. >> i was proud of him. >> bill: didn't talk about the block there was a crucifix in urine. >> read the speech. read the speech. >> bill: joe, you got to stop interrupting. juan at interrupting. one at a time. >> you interrupt me, i won't interrupt you. >> bill: that's the way it works. this is a picture of mohamed morsi, former muslim brotherhood head referred to the israelis as vampires, was part of a terrorist organization, gets $2 billion, american dollars, a year, and i want to know, he says that we're not necessarily an ally of egypt, he's aligning with iran. why should we give more cent to the muslim brotherhood in egypt? should you explain why that should be american policy?
on foreign policy. the war in afghanistan is drawing to a close. the plans have been laid out for troops to return home. what is an acceptable outcome to the war in afghanistan, and what is our responsibility to achieve that outcome after u.s. troops returned? >> we have always had difficult returned with describing that, and as a result we need to get our troops out of afghanistan as quickly as we can. >> before the president's timeline? >> it is time to bring our troops home and stop spending $2 billion a week in afghanistan. we need that money. >> the united states does not have responsibility any longer? >> we cannot rebuild afghanistan for ever. we cannot do that. having unrealistic goals and spending more money is the wrong approach. i want to say on this, all three of my brothers served in the military. our service members are incredible. they will do anything we ask of them. they work hard, they are resourceful, but that means we owe them an obligation to put them out in harm's way when we have clear goals in mind, when it is clear what we're going to do, how we will accomplish i
. even whhis counterpunching has gone miniature. make the case. go large. about a foreign policy in ruins, an archaic 20th century welfare state, the guarantee of 21st century insolvency and an alternate vision of an apologetically assertive america abroad unafraid of fundamental structural change at home. it might just work and it is not too late. mark halperin is it too late? he capable as a candidate to do this after all we've seen over the past five years from mitt romney? or not seen? >> if you watch conservative media, read krauthammer, watch fox or talk privately to any republican politician, it's hard to find anybody, even some people as you all know inside the romney campaign, who think they're doing the right thing now. that they're ontrack to win just by governor romney saying that. the challenge for them is because of the dine ammics, we've seen this movie before, they are getting all this advice in public and private and they have to do something that shows a change. as i said before you can't be just a good debate performance. as kelly said the events have to be bigger. the
on the september 11th attacks. he running for re-election, strongly on a foreign policy/national security platform because he cannot run on the economy, so if that is taken away from him, he's got nothing. that's why you're getting the lies. megyn: go ahead, kirsten. >> honestly, i would prefer lying over incompetence to be completely honest just as an american citizen who is concerned for my safety. the incompetence one is more damning. the fact that they have attacked cnn for finding this journal and using information in it that showed that the ambassador was fearing for his life from who? al-qaeda. when they've been telling us that the war on terror is dead because usama bin laden is dead. the fact that the state department didn't protect him knowing he had these concerns. these are things that are very troubling, the fact that they did not go to the scene of the crime, the terrorist attack, and recover anything that might fall into the hands of terrorrests that could be used against the united states, and instead cnn went to the scene. so there are so many things that are so troubling, um, tha
pattern on disingaugement on america's foreign policy. we're projecting weakness at a time we need to projecting strength. we're showing feebleness when we need to show resolve. i was amazed in the tick-tock on the call he made on the 12th of septem president that it was revealed that this was the first time the president had talk to the libyan president. i can't imagine that in this part of the world whether a new leader takes office that the president of the united states doesn't seem to understand how important that personal relationship is and didn't bother to call the president of libya when he was sworn into office earlier this summer. bill: one more thing. i just want to make this quick. i don't mean to cut you off but in interest of time here, where does this go, if anywhere? >> well, look, it's eating up time on the calendar if it had not happen we would be talking about economy, deficits, jobs and affordable care act. if mitt romney is going to use this successfully he needs not only to make this critique and point out this is broader frame as seeing the president disenga
-- the foreign policy, there was a spike when mitt romney went abroad. i believe aj invited us here and our job is to keep everyone here on the panel on this. >> think you're a very interesting. as our panelists make their presentation, maybe it least two items i thought would be interested to adjust -- the very interesting article and book out now by sasha eisenberg about the fact that the press cannot keep up with political consultants and social that parking experts. reporters basically are way behind the curve in this campaign. we think that is an interesting topic to take a look at. as well as the fact that in a wave of reporters, my impression is it looks like both candidates have succeeded for the most part in talking over the press, especially the traveling press, and making them almost irrelevant to the campaign. let us start off with amy davidson. >> can everybody hear me? i will start by addressing what he does talk about a little bit. even in the title of the panel, is this any way to cover a campaign? there is somewhat of a note of this may which i think -- dismay, which i think a
-z and fund raising and campaigning. and he's in the meeting with a single world leader. >> foreign policy is a mess. you have the arab world exploding and it won't be in libya if this is a monster and the u.s. had given up wupgs and paid off the families from the lockerbie bombing which he admitted responsibility for after bush invaded iraq. we got a lot out of the iraq war. they aren't talking about this on other stations. all they can do is accuse republicans. >> conservatives rarely want to bring up the issue of race. it has become a narrative. if you mention the word chicago it's now... >> there is a new one tonight on chris math use apartment is racist. >> sean: everything is racist you guys are so lucky. i've done nothing but watch msnbc. >> sean: mugged. this is just a short montage of things that have been al gore they don't want to count you in the census z just like a little snip yet. it goes on every election cycle. watch this. >> i think that they played a race card on me. we know from the campaign and everything they plan to do it all along. >> there is an overwhelming portio
tentatively branching out into foreign policy. kind of. >> i mean, turn on the tv and it remind you of 1979 tehran, but they're burning our flags in capitals all around the world. they're storming our embassies. we've lost four of our diplomats and what is the signal that our government is sending the world. >> paul ryan wants to look like president obama is one-term jimmy cartier and paul ryan would be cast as ronald reagan. but it's notable that he's even trying in a campaign that's been unwilling and unable to engage america in the larger world. he's finally trying to do it. in terms of what they're going to do, on even just say the issue of war we're in right now, they have really been unwilling to engage. maybe this means they'll start. so far, i mean, famously mr. romney didn't mention the war in afghanistan at all. he explained in speeches like that you don't go through a laundry list. you go through things that are important. the war wasn't important to him. but it's not just specifically afghanistan. here's another one. if you go to mitt romney's website right now and you type the
? greg gutfeld on fox, his quote was it's better for "o" to talk to foreign policy rather than the biddies on "the view view." >> i have a bitty for you. come see me. >> bob: go see her. >> greg: i would come see her. i know what she would do to me. nasty? joy b herbr who vokeed about burning mitt's house down and called clarence thomas demonic and said gay republican were after mitt's kids and said mitt would kill us out. fake outrage is trite. >> dana: she pretended she didn't know your name. who was it? greg gutfeld. >> greg: i know, we have been dating throughout the '80s. this hurt me. >> eric: whoopi, take it. >> bob: i would let her take -- >> greg: i would let her take me an enjoy every minute of it. >> kimberly: wow. this is very bizarre. >> greg: don't judge. >> kimberly: okay. i'll do a nice thing to honor andy williams who passed away at 84 from bladder cancer. one of my favorite things was president ronald reagan called him a national treasure. somebody that everybody loved to watch, great performer. he didn't have the word "retire" in him. he will be missed. >> gr
. the only foreign policy he has succeeded at killing bin laden. >> host: i also think that president obama has actually been on the same page where americans are in terms of iraq, drawing down, but as you said, that's not what a leader does. >> guest: we need to select in the side. we have a crisis in europe which can affect us. the crisis of the dollar, the jobless priceless here. there are a lot of causes the president had picked up would resonate with the public instead of taking obscure bits from the progressive wishlist like health care reform. >> host: we have only a few minutes left. tell us about your biggest conclusions and what you might do next. >> guest: this book was -- when you write a book coming to enter big questions. you're going to play detective for a year or so. you want to spend some time really thinking about this. this came as a great surprise me. i was expecting to find something very different. i was expecting to find a much more determined leader, someone who indicates a new generation in american politics. if you look at the debates in 2008 between john mccain a
clear on foreign policy, and there has been a lack of leadership. in 2009, there were protesters in iran. we heard nothing from our government. in 2011, the government finally stepped forward and we saw some sanctions put in place. i am happy to see european countries have also stepped forward and into a limited sanctions against iran. but we need to have a strong administration who is going to make it clear that a line needs to be drawn. we have never heard from this government. we have never heard them say that iran should not be in reaching uranium. we need to make clear if we are going to be leaders, if the united states of america is going to be a leader in foreign policy and keep stability in this world as has been our mission in the past, then we need to make it clear. >> sen. fischer, thank you. >> i'm not running for president so i do not want to disagree with president obama or governor romney on iran, but we cannot allow them to acquire nuclear weapons. but what happens afterwards? they do not call it the persian gulf for nothing. we got worked up when we launched cruise missi
had more time for the letterman, "the view," and more. >> his foreign policy is a mess. the arab world is exploding. it wouldn't be exploding in libya if, though he's a monster, this libyan strongman gadhafi had already given up his weapons of mass destruction, had paid off the families of the lockerbie bombing, which he admitted responsibility for, after bush invaded iraq. we got a lot out of the iraq war, but they're not talking about it on the other stations, because all they can do is accuse republicans of racism. >> sean: conservatives rarely want to bring up the issue of race. it's become a -- if you mention the word "chicago," it's now a -- >> a new one tonight on "chris matthews." apartment is racist. >> sean: everything is racist. >> i do nothing but watch msnbc. >> sean: this is a short montage of things that have been -- you know, al gore, they don't want to count you in the census, republicans have the wrong policy about black america. watch a snippet, because it goes on every election cycle. look at this. >> i think they played the race card on me. we now know from mobil m
suddenly the middle east and foreign policy, that used to be something that the left thought they could count on being a strong point and i'm wondering whether there's some question now whether that becomes a liability. >> joe, the real unemployment number is over 17%. when you add back the tremendous numbers of people that gave up looking for jobs and all of the other things they do to manipulate them, you're not talking about 8.2%. you're you can taking about the real number being over 17%. and i don't think there's even a little bit of a question. if you look at what's happening, apple, we all talk about apple and we watch the stock go up, although yesterday it finally had a bad day after about 400 years. but you watch this whole situation with apple, china is the -- they're the ones that make the product. we don't make any apple product. and they talk about how it benefits us. but china makes the product. china is the beneficiary of apple. we're not so much of a beneficiary. so we have to get the jobs back in this country. we have to take those jobs away, incentivize companies inclu
with something, and you get touched on some positions. how would you describe foreign policy? how should america face the world? >> we should be the shining begin on the hill. but our military interventions, are going in, and we are determining -- we are replacing one dictator with another dictator. foreign aid is money spent on dictators. it is not spent on people in other countries. it is spent on propping up other governments. we are funding the insurgents in syria, and one-quarter of the insurgents in syria are supposed to be al qaeda. did we not do this in afghanistan? did we not bankroll osama bin laden? what we ought to have learned is that these military interventions make enemies to the united states, people who are affected by this. these drones strikes, yes, we hit the targets, but we wipe out another quarter block. we kill tens of thousands of innocent civilians living in these countries that we are ostensibly there to help. we are just continuing to make more and more enemies. it is no surprise that the unrest in the middle east is occurring right now. i would get out of our embassi
. that needs to be made clear. we have an administration that has foreign policy that is in confusion. it is not clear to our allies. in 2009 we saw student , and no word from this administration. in 2011 the united states stepped forward with a sanction. i am happy european nations have stepped forward with a sanction, but we need to be clear with our ally, israel, and this is not their problem. it is not just a problem in that region. this is a problem for the world. it is estimated in three years the iranians are going to be able to reach the united states. this is our concern, and we have heard nothing from the sun ministration -- from this administration with regards to iran enriching. there is a lack of clarity. i want america to remain a stabilizing force in in the world. we need to have thought, but with lack of leadership, lack of clarification, when our allies do not know what we are doing common we have lost that. >> thank you. senator kerry. >> this is a confusing time after the arab spring. it is hard to find out what is going on in the middle east. they do not call it th

, the theme is obama's foreign policy has been a disaster. it has been a disaster. why looky here. americans trust a better government to handle international affairs than in a decade. >> what do you know about that. >> stephanie: 66% have a great deal of trust in the government's ability to handle international problems. >> that's what happens when you let adults run the place. >> to be fair there's violence in the middle east. oh, wait there's always been violence in the middle east. it's never ever happened before. >> stephanie: in the president's speech at the u.n. yesterday -- [ applause ] wow, we'll talk about that when we come back. we have some crunchy audio goodness from that. it is hump days with hal sparks. and stephanie brown obama biden national vote director will join us as well. we roll along, hump days with hal on "the stephanie miller show." no more cops, firefighters, no teachers. >> are there street lights. i'm going to be on with the governor tomorrow night.
